The Take Me Home (TMH) Transition Program is a program of the West Virginia Bureau for Medical Services (BMS). The purpose of TMH is to identify qualifying residents of long-term care facilities who wish to return to their own homes and apartments in the community and provide them with supports and services they need to do so. The TMH Transition Program is supported by West Virginia's Money Follows the Person (MFP) Rebalancing Demonstration Grant.
OVERVIEW OF THE MONEY FOLLOWS THE PERSON (MFP) REBALANCING INITIATIVE
West Virginia was awarded a Money Follows the Person MFP grant by the Centers for the Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) in 2011. West Virginia's MFP program is called Take Me Home (TMH), West Virginia.
Currently, 43 states and the District of Columbia are participating in the MFP demonstration. The purpose of MFP is to support the state Medicaid programs in providing people with long-term care needs a greater choice of where to live and receive needed services and supports.
Each state MFP initiative consists of two parts:
- A transition program to identify Medicaid members living in long-term care facilities who wish to live in the community and help them do so; and
- A rebalancing program through which states make system-wide changes that provide Medicaid members with long-term care needs the opportunity to live and receive services in their own homes and communities.
